        DEFINE_CLK_GATE(_name, "tclk", NULL, 0,                         \
                        (void __iomem *)CLOCK_GATING_CTRL,              \
                        _bit, 0, &gating_lock)

DEFINE_KIRKWOOD_CLK_GATE(clk_ge0,    CGC_BIT_GE0);
DEFINE_KIRKWOOD_CLK_GATE(clk_pex0,   CGC_BIT_PEX0);
DEFINE_KIRKWOOD_CLK_GATE(clk_usb0,   CGC_BIT_USB0);
DEFINE_KIRKWOOD_CLK_GATE(clk_sdio,   CGC_BIT_SDIO);
DEFINE_KIRKWOOD_CLK_GATE(clk_tsu,    CGC_BIT_TSU);
DEFINE_KIRKWOOD_CLK_GATE(clk_dunit,  CGC_BIT_DUNIT);
DEFINE_KIRKWOOD_CLK_GATE(clk_runit,  CGC_BIT_RUNIT);

I've so far not had any problems, and not needed an sed foo.  I do
only have a dozen or so clocks, which helps. But even so, all the real
pain is hidden inside DEFINE_CLK_GATE() which Mike maintains.

I guess the problem comes when you are not using the basic clk
providers, but your own provider. What might help is if
linux/clk-provider.h could provide some macros to do most of the
generic definitions. Something like:

#define DEFINE_CLK_GENERIC(_name, _flags, _ops)                 \
        static struct clk _name;                                \
        static char *_name##_parent_names[] = {};               \
        static struct clk _name = {                             \
                .name = #_name,                                 \
                .ops = &_ops,                                   \
                .hw = &_name##_hw.hw,                           \
                .parent_names = _name##_parent_names,           \
                .num_parents =                                  \
                        ARRAY_SIZE(_name##_parent_names),       \
                .flags = _flags,                                \
        };

and then you have something like

#define DEFINE_CLK_IMX(_name, _flags, _foo, _bar)               \
        static struct clk_imx _name##_hw = {                    \
                .hw = {                                         \
                        .clk = &_name,                          \
                },                                              \
                .foo = _foo,                                    \
                .bar = _bar,                                    \
        };                                                      \
	DEFINE_CLK_GENERIC(_name, _flags, clk_imx_ops)
